Early Childhood Development

  • Early childhood development embodies several fields such as health and nutrition, early childhood education, infant stimulation, community development, women’s development, psychology, sociology among others.
  • It is now recognized universally that intellectual, emotional and physical development, socialization and acquisition of culture, all combine to shape a young child’s life
  • According to John Bowlby, a noted British psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, separation of mother and child in their early years could lead to such problems in children as depression and delinquency. This is where CRRECENT’s Juvenile Justice Programme meet its Early Childhood Programme. A good early childhood intervention can avert delinquency and crime.
